BRYAN, Texas A Bryan daycare has been shut down by the state.

Investigators say Camelot Learning Center failed to make improvements after a baby was dropped and severely injured at the facility last fall.

The Department of Family and Protective Services has been closely monitoring the facility since September when 5-month-old Lincoln Shumbera was reportedly dropped by a caregiver. He suffered severe head injuries and underwent brain surgery

The child's caregiver Freddie Walton, 53, turned herself into authorities in November on charges of endangering a child by omission.

The Department of Family and Protective Services says it revoked Camelot's license today saying it failed to meet minimum standards.

The state cited several deficiencies including a child who was severely injured in December when they got caught on playground equipment and choked by their jacket sleeve. The child passed out but was treated and released from the hospital.

The state says the daycare has 15 days to appeal the decision, but must remain closed during the entire appeals process.

The state recommends all parents looking for childcare to visit the website .
